Jimmy Young

Jimmy (Jim) Young, of St. George, Utah, passed away peacefully on April 2, 2018. He was 84.
He was born on Dec. 28, 1933, in Kanosh, Millard County, Utah, to Millard Hart Young and Trelma Penney.
He joined the U.S. Navy immediately after graduating from Millard High School in 1953 and was honorably discharged in 1963.
Jim met the love of his life, Carolyn L. Harrison on a “blind date” that essentially lasted 57 years. Carolyn preceded him in death, Nov. 20, 2017.
Jim worked in heavy construction throughout his career. He and Carolyn also owned the Russian Bell Jewelers in Sitka for several years, eventually retiring to St. George, Utah.
Jim was an active member of the Elks Lodge in Sitka, serving in several capacities.
Although they moved to a warmer climate their “home” and their “hearts” were always firmly planted in Sitka.
“Separated in death by only four short months, they can now freely travel together in the next life as they often did in this life,” his family said.
Jim is survived by his son, Michael Jim Young of Brigham City, Utah; and daughter, Kim M. Young (Bo Graham) of Kannapolis, N.C.
Eight grandchildren and five great- grandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews, also survive.
The family would like to thank his nieces Kate Adams (Trino Valladolid) and Jean Adams (Max Anderson) for the countless hours of kind and loving service for their father.
A small graveside service will take place in Kanosh, Utah, April 7.
